Join local filmmaker Hanan Daqqa on Monday, August 20 at 7:00 pm at the Westborough Public Library and learn about a new way to create home movies. Through a process called Family Participatory, parents collaborate with a professional filmmaker to document a piece of their child's life in an artistic 3-5 minute film. The results are incredible! Short, rich and meaningful films, they can be shared with friends, relatives and the world. When you watch any of them you will realize it is not another home movie!
Three short films about three Westborough families will be screened. The story of each film was created by the parents, who will be present to talk about their experiences. In the first film, "Super Jackson," a mother interviews the superhero inside her 4 year old son. In "A Summery Morning," a mother documents her morning with her children, and in "Magical Owen," parents celebrate the interest of their child in magic and music.
These films were created using direct cinema style. You will learn a lot more about the process that made these films possible directly from the filmmaker, Hanan Daqqa, who created it, and the films, for her master's project at Emerson College. The project is the result of a collaboration between Ms. Daqqa, Westborough TV, and Emerson College. The screening and presentation are free and open to the public.
